This is a small group of POW letters and documents I have owned for quite a while to a 2nd LT who served with Company G , 505th Parachute Infantry , 82nd Airborne Division . He made the Normandy jump , but was severly injured. He was captured by the Germans on June 7, 1944 . He intitially was held at Oflag 64 ( POW camp for ground officers ) and was later transferred to Stalag IIIC after Oflag 64 was abandoned as the Russians got closer.
The first item is a receipt he received from the Germans at Oflag 64 for 4 pieces of ID he had on him when captured.
Oflag 64 had a rich history of putting on plays in their own theater. The 2nd item is a ticket for a performance!
